Treat don't Cheat - Green Tea Chicken Curry

green tea chicken curry

No need to call a takeaway this weekend, this green tea coconut chicken is a curry like no other! It’s perfect for a Friday night in, with the extra bonus that it is super good for you! Green tea is a powerful antioxidant, helping to protect the skin, boost energy levels and detoxify the body. It adds a wonderful colour and flavour to this super simple dish.


2 tablespoon coconut oil

½ cup finely chopped onion

450g / 1 lb chicken breast pieces

1 – 2 teaspoon matcha green tea powder, plus extra to serve

1 tablespoon honey

about 200ml / ¾ cup coconut milk

a pinch of sea salt and white pepper

steamed rice, to serve

toasted flaked/slivered almonds, to serve



Heat the coconut oil in a saucepan, over low-medium heat. Add the chopped onions and cook gently for 2-3 minutes until soft. Add the chicken and cook until they are white all over, then stir in the green tea powder, honey and coconut milk. Simmer gently for a further 7-8 minutes until the chicken is cooked all the way through. If you like more sauce, you can add a dash more coconut milk or a little water to slacken the mixture.

Season the dish with salt and white pepper and serve, sprinkled with a little extra matcha green tea powder, on a bed of steamed rice with a sprinkle of toasted flaked / silvered almonds on top.
